After arriving at camp and setting gear it was about 6 PM and we starting hearing several bugles. The three of us struck off in different directions to do an evening spot and stalk. With the exception of a close encounter with an immature bull my evening was uneventful. The last one to return to camp, as I approached, I could hear the excitement and full volume of voices. Expecting to see an animal in camp, I was instead greeted with Bill's cell phone displaying a picture of his quiver and he asked. "What's wrong with this picture?". The picture had 6 arrows, five looked brand new and one was trademark blood-red! After elk hunting for a lifetime total of 2 hours, Bill smoked a 450 lb. cow elk with an amazing 61 yard downhill shot!!
|To fully appreciate this shot you have to see the location...61 yards down a steep hill, in-between two trees about 5 yards apart, double lung pass through!|
